by Magda Weck Gonzalez. Illustrated by J.A. Gonzalez

Native American Tarot Deck
Price: $20.00

Number of cards in deck: 78

Measurements: 2.4 x 4.4 inches; or 67 x 112 millimeters.

Back of card: A rather complex Indian design that looks Zuni/Hopi to us, on a white background. Symetric, so you can invert the cards.

Booklet included: Yes, 105 pages, 2.25 x 4.5 inches, 57 x 115 millimeters.

Publisher: U.S. Games. Printed in Belgium.

Comments: Some of the major arkana cards are traditional, some of them are unique, such as the Hosteen Coyote, Corn Maiden, Sled, Sun Dance & Weaver. Suits are Blades, Pipes, Vessels & Shields. Court cards are Chief, Matriarch, Warrior & Maiden. Cards are topical & include the Trail of Tears (7 of Shields) & Victory (6 of Pipes) which show Indians defeating US Calvary in battle (Custer's forces?), as well as Indolence (8 of Vessels) - a drunkard. A Native American neighbor born on the same day/same year as ourselves had a book of Indian stories which included a fascinating section of Indian sex stories, which we found delightfully refreshing. According to the book, Indians don't have the sexual hangups of the white folks - they think sex is lots of fun. That's not the focus of this deck, which is more grim. We wish it weren't. American Indians have been through an horrific, ghastly period which is not yet over. This deck reflects that. We wish them well.
